Mount & Blade 2 Bannerlord – Best Graphics Settings

It is always recommended to run a game on a medium end gaming rig if you want to find out the best combination of graphics settings for the game. There is no point in running benchmarks on gaming rigs with high or enthusiast level graphics cards. Because lets be honest, every single game will run smoothly on a RTX 2080 Super or a RX 5700 XT.

Though the system requirements of Mount & Blade 2 Bannerlord are a bit high as it requires a GTX 1060 or a RX 580 to run smoothly, we still went ahead and ran it on a very basic and mediocre gaming PC.

Here are the full specifications of our rig:

  • CPU : Intel i3 9100F
  • GPU : Zotac GTX 1650
  • RAM : 16GB DDR4 2400mhz
  • HDD : 1 TB 7200 rpm
  • Monitor Resolution : 1920×1080
  • OS : Windows 10 Professional 64-bit

This game is so poorly optimized that our low-end gaming consisting of GTX 1650, i3 9100F and 16GB RAM, was having a really hard time running Bannerlord. So we had no other option.
